Round 1 - Lost to Nate Meister from Marion 2-6, 0-6
Consolation Round 1 - Lost to Reed Morris from Clarke Osceola 6-3, 5-7, 0-1
SL-O Coach Dan Taylor:
Tom had a terrific season. The state singles tournament is very challenging, and making it there is a great accomplishment in itself. His first match was as tough as it gets, as he drew the #1 seed in the tournament. He played him tough in the first set. I'm In the 2nd Meister raised his level, and Tom struggled with his forehand. In the consolation match Tom started out on fire, getting up 5-0 in the first set. Morris started serving well and was very scrappy, so he was able to pull out a right second set and the match tiebreak at the end. Tom should be very proud of his accomplishments this season, and I wish him the best as he returns home to Germany!
